The DJI Phantom 2 Vision with Spare Battery, Spare Props, and Backpack is a bundle from B&H that not only includes the Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter with integrated FPV camera, but also a set of spare, self-tightening propellers, a spare battery offering up to 25 minutes of flying time, and a backpack with foam interior to store the Phantom and accessories in. Plus the bundle features a 32GB microSD card for recording video or taking photos in their highest quality.
Phantom 2 Vision is the second generation of quad-rotor RC helicopter from DJI and features DJI's own 14 megapixel FPV camera, giving you a first-person view (FPV) experience right out of the box. With a larger battery and improved prop design, flying time lasts to up to 25 minutes, compared to around 14 minutes on the original DJI Phantom Quadcopter. This product will appeal to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists who want to record their flights to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities.
Included with the Quadcopter is a 5.8 GHz wireless controller (TX) that has an operational range approaching 1000 feet (300 m) line-of-sight. The camera is controlled via 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi using an app available for iOS and Android devices. Using the supplied mount, you can attach your smartphone directly to the controller, giving you a "heads up" display directly from the camera's point-of-view with only 1/10 of a second latency. From the app you will also be able to start and stop video recording, take a snapshot and even tilt the camera up or down.
Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft the Phantom Vision 2 relies on a GPS-based navigation system to maintain flight stability and provide other features. While fully manual operation is possible, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for GPS Flight Mode. GPS Mode is an autopilot system that keeps the Quadcopter stable and right-side-up when moving, and holds it in a fixed horizontal and vertical position whenever you release the controls.
In addition to the battery boxed with the Phantom 2 Vision, a spare flight battery is included. New for model of the Phantom, the 5200 mAh battery system that has been simplified from the previous version. The battery now slots in and provides LED indicators on outside, tail-end of the aircraft so they can be seen in flight. Charging is also simplified, with all of the charging circuitry built into the battery itself. You simply need to plug it into the wall with the supplied universal AC adapter.
A backpack with custom foam interior is featured in the bundle to store and transport the Phantom 2 Vision. In addition to the Phantom the case will hold the transmitter, spare batteries, charger, and other miscellaneous accessories. The lower level featuring "pick-and-pluck" foam that you can shape to suit your specific requirements.
Warning: Do not press the "Reset" button next to ON/OFF switch on the Wi-Fi Range Extender. Doing so will clear the binding between Range Extender and Vision Camera. If "Reset" is pressed accidentally, please see the Phantom 2 Vision owner's manual for instructions on how to re-bind the devices.
